We are watching the Clinton empire fall before our eyes. The “Clinton Global Initiative,” something Bill came up with to help him with his “non-profit philanthropy,” announced they would be laying off their employees and closing their doors on April 15. Do you think this is great news?
In a notice filed last week with the New York State Department of Labor, they stated that all 22 employees would be terminated. Here is the text of the announcement:

This had actually been planned for some time. See, if Hillary was elected, it would have been exceedingly difficult to continue to maintain a personal pipeline of foreign and corporate contributions, er … donations to the foundation while she was president.
